What is Dermaplaning?
Dermplaning is a safe process that removes the vellus hair (peach fuzz) and gently exfoliates the skin. During treatment, a surgical steel blade is used to precisely remove fine hairs and dead skin cells. A hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen are then applied to protect and nourish the skin.
Who is a Candidate?
Individuals who wish to treat dry, rough skin, mild acne scars, superficial hyperpigmentation, fine lines or wrinkles, or annoying peach fuzz can often benefit from dermaplaning. This versatile treatment is able to treat all skin types and colors.
